Description
There has never been a more bucolic farm than Wise Acres. There the sun always shines, the sky is always blue, and the breezes are always gentle. The inhabitants of the barnyard -- an assortment of busy, caring, and totally off-the-wall farm animals -- pass their days peacefully in song, dance, and storytelling. That is, until something goes wrong. Then the animals cannot resist rushing in to help each other -- with hilarious results.
In three episodes noteworthy for their straight-faced humor, George Shannon creates a world of lovable, zany animals who establish a special brand of illogic that children will take to heart, while Deborah Zemke's action-packed portrayals of the Wise Acre antics are as fresh and original as the barnyard creatures themselves.
